I think my thoughts were simply OHHHHH MYYYYYYY..... So anyways, now I have to re-evaluate my briefcase choices. The Skytop Pullman is roughly 2x the price of the SBL medium slim briefcase but it's got sweetness oozing out the attic, plus it's a semi hard case made of 8oz (pretty damn thick) Wickett & Craig bridle leather. I am digging the latch release hardware and I haven't seen any similar briefcases that are molded semi hard cases. In fact, it seems Skytop Trading started out selling molded slr camera cases. Thoughts on this one? I see no reviews anywhere and I think this may be a new product from Skytop based on the March 30 2012 youtube post date here: Skytop Trading's Saddle Leather Pullman Briefcase
Just to give some background I originally lusted after Moo's custom case from Narragansett Leathers and was heartbroken to find they recently stopped taking orders for the foreseeable future. I then began a frenzied internet search coming across customhide, Gfeller, Henry Tomkins, SAB ($$$!), a handfull of others I don't recall at the moment, and finally back to Saddleback (who were always in the back of my mind). I'm looking for a lifetime case where I won't want another (he says that today - this guy on my shoulder), you know one of those better with age briefcases that can pull dual purpose in the office and with jeans on the weekend. I though the SBL slim brief was good for that if not a little too casual for the office. The Skytop Pullman on the other hand looks way more classy to me and is still a man's rugged kind of case.
I think I'm just posting out of excitement but please let me know if you have any experience with the Skytop as I cannot find any more info than shown at www.skytoptrading.com & their youtube videos.
